Former tennis star Andre Agassi is one of the all-time greats of the sport.

Agassi dominated from the 1990s into the early 2000s, and became one of just two players in tennis history to win a career Golden Slam and an ATP Tour championship.

His success in tennis earned him a vast fortune, and he’s been living well since retiring in 2006.

So, just how much money did Agassi make from his tennis career?

Early Life & Tennis Career

Andre Kirk Agassi grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, and practiced tennis from a young age.

At just 12 years old, Agassi won the 1982 National Indoor Boys 14s Doubles Championship in Chicago. He then attended the Nick Bollettieri Tennis Academy in Florida at the age of 13 to prepare himself for his future in the sport.

Agassi turned professional in tennis in 1986. Throughout his career, the American star won eight career Grand Slam titles and was the 1996 Olympic gold medal winner in Atlanta.

Agassi became the World No. 1 ranked professional tennis player in 1995, during he and Pete Sampras’ reign over the sport.

Throughout Agassi’s career, he won four Australian Opens, one French Open, one U.S. Open and was also a two-time Wimbledon champ. He was named ATP Player of the Year in 1999, and has won 60 career singles titles.

Agassi was the first tennis player to win all four Grand Slam tournaments while playing on different surfaces, and was the first four-time winner of the Australian Open — a feat later surpassed by Novak Djokovic.
